Sam’s Anchor Cafe has always been a local favorite, and a
“must-visit” for tourists. Now under the direction of General
Manager Michael Tierney, and new Executive Chef Robert
L. Taylor, formerly of Farallon in San Francisco, Sam’s is
changing in some very exciting ways.
Featuring a true farm-to-table menu, Sam’s Anchor Cafe
offers sustainable seafood, house-cured meats and house-smoked fish. The new raw bar introduces select oysters on the
half shell, caviar, various crudo and classic shellfish cocktails.
Sam’s has created a large selection of artisinal cocktails, an
updated wine list and eight craft beers on tap. They also offer
daily specials, weekend brunch and a private banquet room.

Chef Ancona was born in San Francisco and raised in Marin
County. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America
in Hyde Park, New York. After working for Don Alfonso in
Sorrento, Italy and at Roy’s Bar and Grill on Maui, Hawaii, Chef
Ancona returned home to the appeal of Marin County to join
his family in Sausalito at Angelino Restaurant.
These experiences have helped develop a well-rounded, mature
understanding of the possibilities of flavor combinations.
Chef Ancona maintains a strong commitment to using local,
sustainable, and seasonal ingredients in his kitchen.
